Far Right Loon, Michael Savage is now calling for a third party, a Nationalist party. Do you know what Nationalist is? Yep, THAT kind of Nationalist. Further, he wants a STRONG NATIONALIST leader. Remember the last time a Nationalist party had a strong nationalist leader? Hint: nearly a half million Americans lost their to put a stop to that nationalist leader.
“…Michael Savage, conservative radio host, told host Aaron Klein Sunday, “We need a nationalist party in the United States of America.” The Tea Party, he said, isn’t cutting it: “They need to restructure their party. They need a charismatic leader, which they don’t have.”Savage went on to underscore the notion that the Tea Party isn’t as strong as it could be because of a lack of leadership. “When you say Tea Party no one knows who the leader is because there is no leader,” he said. “No man has stepped forward who can lead that party.”…”
In German, they are smart enough to attempt to ban the Nationalist Party. That doesn’t stop Michael Savage from delusions and dreams of grandeur. I wonder if his listeners are practicing their goose-stepping?
What is so humorous about this is that someone like King David would be soundly rejected by the Bible fearing minions of the far right! Think about it! If these people weren’t so crazy they would be funny.
Unfortunately, “NATIONALIST” is a buzz word for something else, something insidious, and quite white, quite male, and very very well armed. We’ve had Nationalist parties in the US before – the American Nationalist Party, the National Socialist Party, the White Nationalist Party (of the UK), etc. Does Savage plan to pattern his Nationalist Party after the White Nationalist Party in the UK?
Now, we do have a Protestant White Nationalist Party here in the US. There’s one in Kentucky. (What do you want to be they are big Rand Paul supporters?) Also – they’re connected to Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance, that is connected to Vdare, which is connected to the CofCC, which is connected to Stormfront, which is connected to the KKK, John Birch Society, and those adorable little goose-steppers.
It should be noted that Michael Savage is not liked by the American Renaissance crowd of closeted nazis. He has never even been close to them, having once been involved in a male pissing contest with American Renaissance, upsetting all the little wanna be nazis who are connected with AM, Stormfront, and the CofCC (many of whom are card carrying Tea Partiers).
This is what is so tragic here. Michael Savage is a decent person. He’s a little hyper, and very much a drama queen, but he is not a white supremacist. It is not even a “nationalist”. He’s just another in a series of followers, terrified, of their shadow. Where Savage goes wrong is his rank homophobia.
It is quite sad.
The worst of this is that the mind-set who pays attention to Savage are the very well armed tea party followers who are terrified that Obama is coming for their guns. Tea Party Libertarians, Koch Heads, and the like are not leaders, they are followers. In many ways, they are a bit frightening. They do what they are told, using talking points that come down from on high. What if those talking points include a notation to start shooting anyone who disagrees with them?
People who are leaders and talking heads like Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Michael Medved don’t worry me. Sure, they are bought and paid for whores of their corporate masters, but they are not the problem. Their followers, the people who hold tight to their talking points, who must be lead like lemmings over a cliff are terrifying. Doesn’t matter if followers are liberal or conservative, they are followers. Atrocities are committed by followers. Wars are started by followers.
It is becoming more and more apparent that the problem we are facing from the tea parties is not from the leadership, but their followers. Without followers, doing their bidding, rather like Anakin Skywalker and the Emperor, you don’t get a Darth Vadar situation. The followers of the libertarian right is increasingly incapable of thinking for themselves. They are being led by highly ambitious individuals with agendas that do not have the best interest of this nation at heart – only their best interests.
If this nation is brought down, it won’t be by the left, but the far right, the minions of the tea parties, John Birch Society, militias, and all those gun loving patriots. Seems to The Pink Flamingo, many of these people should be the last ones to be allowed to have more than a blunderbuss shotgun. Anyone stupid enough to listen to FOX Tabloid News, Glenn Beck, and read the crap circulated by far right jerks deserves to be disarmed, and quickly!
